What happens when you put a young fox shifter in the same house as a shifter hunter? That’s a story. But Zoe also adds that Edward the fox is 18, homeless, and looking after his little sister. Now the story just got doubled in interest. But just to add to the mix, Poor Edward survived an attack by a shifter hunter that not only killed his father but also cost Edward the ability to speak due to having silver in his throat. Which means he speaks via sign language and via his mobile phone.
Max Hunts shifters that have killed humans, he does not have any issues with shifters that abide the law. But he is in a minority of hunters. Max life is his hunting, he has no time for anything else. Until Edward is caught up in the hunt for a fox assassin. Having come face to face with the assassin, Max via his friends in the local police force persuade Edward to stay under Max’s protection with his sister.
Both must adapt to each other and learn to trust the other. Whilst hunting the assassin who is a sly fox.
I adore Edward, his fearless attitude and determination to protect his sister at all costs. He doesn’t complain about his lot in the world. He just adapts and moves forward.
Zoe has done a wonderful job with both characters and the plot certainly had me on the edge of my seat a few times. In fact I am having trouble writing this review as I do not want to give too much away.
I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I went and bought the rest of the series.
